DIRECTIONS TO RITZ CARLTON – Additional

 
Location: Amelia Island, with the historic, picturesque town of Fernandina Beach, is a hidden pearl at the tip of the South’s barrier islands. Surrounded by waters teeming with fish, this deepwater port is still home to one of America’s first shrimp fleets. The tranquil beauty of gnarled oaks and heron-guarded ponds flank some of America’s top-rated fairways. Picturesque shops are a treasure-trove of antiques and fashion. Fine restaurants bring the sea’s fresh harvest and other gourmet delights to your table. Ride a horse on the beach, work out on the tennis court, then enjoy indigo waters that invite sailing, surfing and angling.
We hope you can extend your stay and enjoy Amelia Island.
